Material Religion and the Market

“The familiar observation that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time obscures a more startling fact: the Bible is the best-selling book of the year, every year. Calculating how many Bibles are sold in the United States is a virtually impossible task” says “The Good Book Business” article published in The New Yorker in 2006, underlines the billion dollar industry of Bible-publishing in the U.S.

Rabindranath Tagore was the first Nobel Laureate of Asia. He was a multi-talented genius. He experimented in several fields of creativity namely, song, dance, poetry, dramas, short stories, novels, novellas, essays, education, painting and social reformation to name a few. Even after 150 years of his birth, how or why do humankind across the globe still find Tagore universally relevant?  This panel aims to explore these diverse facets of Rabindranath Tagore as perceived from a contemporary perspective. The panel welcomes papers which examines Tagore’s works in comparison to other practitioners, either his contemporaries or in the contemporary society.

Humans have always moved or danced as a way of ritualizing their relationship to the Divine. These dances expressed an understanding of God(s), the relationship of human beings to the divine world, and were an expression of thanksgiving for the life cycle events that move history forward: birth, death, and all that is between. Some circus arts, find their earliest documentation as religious practices. This book begins the investigation of what it means for these practices to meet their holy origins once more, not as a form of expression but as a mode of study.

Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.

This panel within the March 5-8 2020 NeMLA conference in Boston is dedicated to a discussion of the ways that religion intertwines with fiction in the work of Jorge Luis Borges. 

Your presentation might consider one or several of the following questions:

How did Jorge Luis Borges draw from and transform different theological traditions in his fiction and poetry?

Are there interesting relationships between Borges's fictionalized theologies and literary theory? How do they correspond to his ideas about fiction? 

Do different religious traditions respond to separate aspects of the author’s literary project, or do they overlap and combine? What functions to they serve?

Written as a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens(1990) had an active and long-term fanbase before the debut of the Amazon Prime miniseries. Its adaptation, brought to fruition by Gaiman as a promise to Pratchett before Pratchett’s 2015 death, however, has not only brought new fans into the fold, but increased the visibility of the original text.

Looking for panelists for the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference in Boston, March 19-22, 2020. Below is the panel description:

This panel seeks to explore the intersections between religion and technology in Asian cultures and societies. Taking a broad view of religion, as lived and performative, the aim of this panel is to show how the theological, the technological and the anthropological intermingle to the point of indistinguishability in Asian cultures. The goal is to go beyond an instrumentalist approach wherein technology is enlisted into the service of religion and religious belief. I seek papers related (but not limited) to the following:

1) de/post colonial approach to religion, technology, secularism
